Thread: servo linkage
25/05/2009 20:22:01
Hi on fitting the rudder to my boat the tiller arm is too low for the servo arm to line up i cant lower the servo as it is on the bottom of the boat,i was thinking of turning the servo upside down which would make it level.Or can i bend the steel linkage rods to get them to line up that way.They are the proper ones with the thread on one end,or, will 2 bends cause them to flex on the bends as a load is put on them.Hope this makes sense.

     Hi i was just wondering what colour the inside of the open bridge on the perkasa F.P.B'S was, all the photos i have which are sort of black and white seem to show it as white or maybe a light grey any suggestions appreaciated.

Thanks for the advice, following along on similar lines i have just coated the bare wood hull in 3 coats of sanding sealer and am now going to cover the hull  in shrinking tissue applied with cellouse dope, like the material used on model aircraft to give a good water tight base to the hull before painting,has any one got any usefull tips on using this stuff and applying it, apart from plenty of ventilation? that stuff smells strong.

 Many thanks Sean

Hi i am priming the hull and superstruture in Halfords car spray primer do you know if this is acrilyc paint?as if so it means i can buy normal acrylic paint from my local model shop to finish it off with topcoat, obviously if  different do not want the paints to react with each other.

      Many thanks Sean

Hi i have the precedent 1/32 scale perkasa patrol boat with the 32" wooden hull,i am looking at fitting a single 600 motor in it.I am wondering how to know what size screw and rudder to use and how to work out the length of the prop shaft needed ,also what capacity batterys would be needed to get it on the plane.I know there is a trade off between endurance and speed any info gratefully recieved.

               Many thanks Sean

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
